So I bought Higuain at the start of the game for a mix of attack from Giroud and to give someone to challenge him. Walcott is much more useful on the wing. But he has been just genuinely shocking rubbish. I've tried him in CF, DLF, Poacher, and AF. Best result was a paltry 7.3 over 15 games, usually 6.9 or lower. Occasionally he'll crack an accurate long range that gets blocked but most of what I am seeing is dribbling to the edge of the box and losing his nerve to a bad pass, smashing it at the keeper from 6 meters, or blowing absolute sitters. Like hitting the post from the centre of the 6 yard box with no keeper!!! I've tried to warn him, be aggressive, and be coddling because it turns out he's a nervous wimp. I tried building confidence by putting him on penalties and giving him some goals to pop his cherry, nothing helps. I've tried a 4-2-3-1 or a 4-1-2-3 with ozil or cazorla feeding him endless good balls, he gets the occasional cross knocked in from 1 meter but giroud can do that 10 times better. Any input on better use?
